Baz Luhrmann's newest masterpiece, The Great Gatsby comes out Christmas Day 2012. I am so excited! Remember the 1974 version with Mia Farrow and Robert Redford? Sure, F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote a great novel, and Francis Ford Coppola helped to create a film masterpiece, however, I remember the first time I watched it in 10th grade (or was it 11th?) in one of my english classes and all I could focus on were the gorgeous clothes! 

Fast forward 38 years and the newest version is coming out in theaters. The '20's styled clothes are back in action. Ralph Lauren's spring 2012 collection made a huge nod to the Gatsby time period and his fall 2012 collection is no different... Fun Fact: Lauren designed the costumes for the 1974 film and the 2012 costumes are designed by Brooks Brothers.

Ralph Lauren Fall 2012 looks via
Each one of Ralph's pieces leans towards the style of the roaring '20's and even has an art deco twist. The gold gown on the top right is stunning and the folds/cut on the top half of the dress look like it would fit in at one of Gatsby's parties.
Ralph isn't the only one reminiscing the 1920's. This cloche from Brooks Brothers looks like something Daisy would wear. For more information about the film and the costumes for the 2012 movie, check out this article from
 Have a fabulous day!
